Everytime I open Firefox it opens in Delta-homes or QVO6. I have tried all your solutions several times to get rid of it, and nothing helps. It started with Delta Search installing itself. This I deleted from Programs under Control Panel. After that Delta-homes started installing itself. Delta-homes also keep closing down my website. The only place I can find it is under General - Startpage, where I delete it and add the standard start page Firefox. I have also reinstalled Firefox several times but nothing helps. I used Google Crome before and because of the same problem, I uninstalled it and used Firefox instead thinking it was better and safer - but no - it is exactly the same! I am to the point of getting really irritated as it is totally impossible to get rid of both - So PLEASE HELP!!!

hello, please try this: go to firefox > help > troubleshooting information > profile folder - "show folder", then a new window will open up. in this window look out for a file named user.js (it might be used to overwrite your custom settings). in case it is present , delete or rename this file and restart firefox afterwards.

i'd also recommend running a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner, to see if there are any traces left of those adware programs
